The FBC (Futronic Blow machine Control system) is a motion control system which combines the control and the synchronous drive for rotary blowing machines with up to 32 moulding sections. The technology for this control system is based on the Siemens SIMOTION platform.
This novel automation concept covers the complete requirements profile from the feeder through the glass moulding equipment to the conveyor for the finished product. The desire to provide a control and drive that are not only suited for latest-generation machines was a top development priority. On the contrary, the concept is equally ideal for retrofitting or modernising older lines. Once again, a futronic control solution meets customer demands for increased production reliability, product quality and productivity. Just as you’d expect from futronic!
